Also on April 4th, Durand's Railroaders and Ovid-Elsie's MarauderBots will be taking a long trip to the Upper Penninsula and competing at Lake Superior State University to see if they can make a name for themselves on the other side of the bridge.

The Owosso Operating System team has already completed their scheduled events and are starting to work on some exciting spring and summer activities around Shiawassee County that will include the team and the local community.
